On 6 September we had a joint meeting with the DC/MD chapter to support the first LIVE-O mini-con. Short cut to the LIVE-O page (more presentations to be posted) http://www.owasp.org/index.php/Washington_DC_LIVE-O
Our next meeting will be on 11 Oct and will start at 6pm. We are meeting back at the Booz Allen Herndon facility in room 2209. Our presentations this month will be:
1) Demystifying WS-Security, Ken Lin, Booz Allen Hamilton, Associate
2) Virtual Patch for Web Applications with ModSecurity, Ryan Barnett, Breach Security: Director of Application Security Training
"Fixing identified vulnerabilities in web application always requires time. Organizations often do not have access to a commercial application's source code and are at the vendor's mercy while waiting for a patch. Even if they have access to the code, implementing a patch in development takes time. This leaves a window of opportunity for the attacker to exploit. Virtual patching (also called "just-in-time patching" and "external patching") is one of the biggest advantages of web application firewalls as they can fix this problem externally. A fix for a specific vulnerability is usually very easy to design and in most cases it can be done in less than 15 minutes. This presentation will outline exactly when and where Virtual Patching is appropriate and will show the proper steps for their creation and testing. "
